A bit surprised that And Then There Were None (1945) is not one of the titles mentioned.

Two actually! 'Sleuth' (two great actors in a tour de force!) and the classical 'The 39 steps'

What a good poll. I've never seen four of the films but don't have much interest in seeing three. My vote, therefore will go to 'Sleuth' with Olivier.

IMHO, your Favorite Star Trek Series poll needs to be updated or closed. It has only six options with the most recent debuting nearly two decades ago in 2001. I am posting here since your Enter your answer in our Captain's Log over here! isn't functional. The lastest series  Star Trek: Picard is set to debut Thursday, January 23, 2020. Your poll doesn't include Star Trek: Discovery or any of the existing CBS All Access Star Trek companion series: Star Trek: Short Treks,  After Trek, The Ready Room. It already seems dated now, but seems destined to become even more so with three announced series to debut this fall and beyond: Star Trek: Lower Decks (2020) (TV Series) Untitled Star Trek/Section 31 Project (in development) (TV Series)  Untitled Star Trek Animated Kids Series (TV Series).

I don't update my several year's old polls. It's best to open newer (more update versions) than update existing polls where the previous options already have a several year start (numbers wise).

I stated that position elsewhere and I hope that you would respect that decision.
